Run the Jewels - Meow the Jewels [FREE Download] + Adult Swim Single

Last September around the time the second Run the Jewels album was set to be released - a Kickstarter program was started to raise money for a remix of it.  But this was no ordinary remix album.  El-P (one half of the Run the Jewels duo that also includes rapper Killer Mike) infamously tweeted that if they raised $40,000 he would release a remix of the album using only cat sounds.  What started as a joke snowballed into something huge as famous producers such as Prince Paul, Bauer and Just Blaze and more all started saying that they would sign on to the project if it was made a reality!  Just Blaze even offered to release a kit of all his drums from 2001-2005 if this came to fruition. El-P also stated that if the 40K Kickstarter goal to fund the project was reached he would donate his portion of the money to a charity directly benefiting the families of Eric Garner and Mike Brown.

Needless to say the goal was reached, and a year later MEOW THE JEWELS is here for free download!  There's even a brown vinyl version available for purchase that has FAUX FUR on the cover!  No need to fret about the high price tags either, all profits from the sales of the vinyl of this album will be going to charity.  As a bonus we have also linked the first single from the soundtrack to Shan Nicholson's recent documentary Rubble Kings. The film chronicles the gang violence of Seventies New York City – and how hip-hop culture arose from it.  The track is is produced by RTJ-collaborator Little Shalimar and is being released for free download courtesy of Adult Swim who will also be releasing a limited edition t-shirt / art print (linked below as well.)
